“Our stance on resource control, unwavering”–Gov. Dickson

The Bayelsa state Governor Seriake Dickson has reaffirmed the stance of the Ijaw ethnic nationality on the issue of restructuring, saying the restructuring must be based on resource control, fiscal federalism and devolution of powers from the center to the federating units.

According to Governor Dickson, the restructuring being sought by the Ijaw ethnic nationality will enthrone a fair, balanced and equitable country where all ethnic groups will be proud to call their own.

Governor Dickson, who made this position known after a special interdenominational church service to mark Nigeria’s 57th independence and the 21st anniversary of the creation of Bayelsa at the King of Glory Chapel, Government House in Yenagoa. urged Nigerians not to see the call as a threat to national security adding that the Ijaws believe in the continuous peaceful existence of Nigeria as one indivisible entity.

According to the statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Francis Ottah Agbo, Governor Dickson described restructuring as an urgent national imperative and noted that those who are calling for it do so in the best interest of the country.

Governor Dickson submitted that restructuring would help in laying a better foundation for the future of the country and address the current challenges threatening national peace, stability and prosperity of the nation

“We have to re-examine our nation’s foundation and see how we can make necessary adjustments that will promote a more stable and prosperous Nigeria. The current structure of the country is not sustainable.

“Very often, a number of our leaders misconstrue the call for restructuring to mean secession. No, those calling for restructuring are the patriots of Nigeria. Because we want to lay a foundation for Nigeria that will last for the next 100 to 200 years.

“Our view as a state, ethnic nationality and region is that we support the call for restructuring but we must all sit down and agree on how we can re-adjust our country. We are all Nigerians. Nobody is more Nigerian than a Bayelsan or Niger Deltan. Nobody has the right to question our Nigerianess. We are the people that have been sustaining this country with oil revenue.”

The governor used the opportunity to felicitate with President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerians on the 57th independence anniversary and urged all to work for the good of the country.

Governor Dickson who also paid glowing tributes to the founding fathers of Bayelsa and late head of state, Gen Sani Abacha for creating Bayelsa state called on people of the state to support government at all times.

While regretting that Nigeria had left Bayelsa and Ijaw nation behind, development wise, the governor said it would have been worse if Bayelsa state was not created.  He promised to keep delivering on his campaign promise to Bayelsans even in the face of the recession.

In his sermon, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Religious Matters, Rev Samuel John Peters enjoined Bayelsans and Nigerians to be creative and make good use of every resource at their disposal including time.

According to Rev John Peters, God hates indolence as He has given man the power to be creative and appreciate in value.

The service which had in attendance, the wife of the Governor, Dr Rachel Dickson, the Deputy Governor, Rear Admiral Gboribiogha John Jonah Rtd and other prominent personalities, featured special prayers for the state and Nigeria in general.
